Wargame Airbrushing 01: multi-purpose rigs

To get an airbrush rig on the table top, I got to combine two of the great things in life... modelling, and home improvement stores.  For this particular build, I had a few criteria:  keep it multi-purpose, portable, and suitable to long painting sessions (my preferences), and keep it quiet (my wife's preference).

This particular setup has a few bells and whistles that are not required for basic airbrushing...I will make note of those optional components when they come up.  The order I list them is the order I connect them in the final rig.

Tank Spank 1 - September 21st, 2013 at PLU

Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA is hosting a Gamerati Game Day September 21st, 2013. 

From noon to 5pm, I will be running Tank Spank 1...the trial run of a Late War all-tank Flames of War event.  Tank Spank uses most of the Tank Aces campaign rules (as presented in Blood, Guts and Glory) with a few exceptions listed below.

There will be demos and pick-up games for Flames and other systems going on from 10am until midnight; card games upstairs, miniatures downstairs, not sure about the board games and traditional games...but they will be in the building!
